Boomkat Product Review:
Section 25's rich recording history stems back to their Factory Records debut 7", 'Girls Don't Count' produced by none other than Joy Division's Ian Curtis and Rob Gretton.
Sadly, this latest album comes after the death of vocalist and keyboard player Jenny Cassidy (whose contributions can still be heard on 'Dream' and 'Better Make Your Mind Up'), which gives some explanation for the band's long time away from the recording process. The music on Part-Primitiv is informed by all phases of the band's back-catalogue, incorporating their ealry post punk impulse alongside their later disposition towards electronic music. A track such as 'Cry' would fit into the former category, evoking the kind of jagged yet atmospheric new wave that characterised the work of former labelmates Joy Division, 'She's So Pretty' is one of the band's closest brushes with pop music, though it still seems to be offset by an edge of fury in the vocal delivery and its acerbic synth strings. There are ventures into surprisingly straight-forward techno here too: 'Power Base' comes as something of a surprise with its rampaging drum machine, but you'd have to say that the band are at their most successful with the gritty guitar onslaught of tracks like 'Ludus Cantus' and 'Nick' which both sound as though they could have been created during Section 25's early eighties prime.
